So we are 4 days into Kindergarten, and I am loving it. Walking around West's school I was astounded by how awesome the facilities are, and we're in a pretty low scoring district in the state. They have an art room! A science lab! A big library! A music room! I guess the Catholic schools I went to were just super shabby.

Every week Kindergarten gets 2 music classes, 2 art classes, a PE class, and a computer class. Our school gives every kid a free breakfast and free lunch. We're still navigating that, because West is so picky, so he won't eat most of the food they have, but he also had one morning where he ate two breakfasts, one at home and one at school (he was like "yeah, I had a tummy ache after that"). So, still packing a lunch most days, but today he got school lunch and went for the super responsible choice of eating pancakes and chocolate milk for lunch. Oh, kid.

His teacher seems really nice and is brand new, and the kids seem like great kids (from what I could tell from seeing some of them like twice). The school did a scavenger hunt / meet & greet / Q&A session for the incoming Kindergarteners on the night before the first day of school, it was super nice.

He's in the Y's afterschool program in the same building where he was going to daycare, and it's going surprisingly well. He seems super happy, a couple of kids from daycare who go to different schools now are in the program with him. They actually give the afterschool kids free dinner every night if the kids want it. We could literally not have to feed our kid at all except for snacks every weekday if we needed to.

So we're starting off well! Yay!
